Design your own list view

With SmartPlaylistv 5.8 you will be able to configure exactly what information you want to see in the list view. You can select up to 6 different song attributes (3 in the main line, 3 in the sub-line) from the 11 available ones. You can also specify how (with which characters) to separate the different additional infos.
Here is an example:
Line 1: Title & " • " & Duration
Line 2: Artist & "  -- " & Album

... which is configured like this:
With the "⌥"-button you can select from the different available attributes:
  

Some more suggestions (for line 1 or 2), to show what is possible:

  • Artist & ": " & Title & " (" & Track# & ")"
  • Title & "  / bpm:" & BPM
  • Title & " | " & Year & " | " & Duration
  • ... 

Note:

  • Don't overload it. On old hardware (e.g. iPodTouch2) it is best to just use Title / Artist
  • On the iPad there is much more space that can be used
  • Rating, PlayCount & LastPlayed can be displayed seperately ("hide" / "as ▯▯▮▮▮" / "as text")

v5.6 out already

Simple enough: Go to ⌘, "Settings..." and untick the rules you never use. They will be hidden.

If you hide a rule which is still used in a SmartPlaylist, you will still see it when you use ⌘, "Show only active rules".


With the next release (v5.7) you will also be able to configure what you want to see in the MusicBrowser "Genres➤Composers➤Groupings➤Artists➤Albums➤Titles", e.g. to make just "Genres➤Artists➤Albums➤Titles"
